Padang

Beaches · Waterfalls · Islands
Porch of Medina
The largest city on the western coast of Sumatra, Padang enjoys a reputation as one of Indonesia's cleanest and greenest cities despite its hub of residential and commercial activity. There's more than just human business here, though: the city is also located centrally on a tectonic plate and annually experiences earth tremors. A Padang holiday offers excellent transport to surrounding attractions, including nearby islands perfect for diving and highlands for trekking. Add the region's famed authentic street food stalls to your Padang itinerary--they're rumored to be among the best in Indonesia. When using our Indonesia trip itinerary maker tool, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.

Where to stay in Padang

Following the massive earthquake of 2009, accommodation options in Padang have slightly decreased due to the demolishment of some of the city's older hotels. Since then, a spate of more modern hotels and lodgings have cropped up, offering onsite restaurants serving authentic local and international food, Wi-Fi, and air conditioning. Otherwise, family-owned and run guesthouses with clean, basic rooms (and sometimes ensuite bathrooms) remain the best options for budget-conscious backpackers.
